25th Hour Reviews
Grow up and evolve!!
The movie did a fantastic job of flashing back to the past in certain moments to recall how and when he got to the point.
He has one last night he spends with friends and his girlfriend.
The movie explores themes of loss, friendship, family, and regret. It really looks at the decision making in life and how making certain decisions can change your life forever. Spike Lee glorified NYC here and it really showed. It really made those even out of New York realize the culture there and how special it is.
Just phenomenal performances all around by all those involved and again top notch story telling and dialogue scenes.

Spike Lee excesses? What the fuck is that? This may be his best film (perhaps Malcolm X is better) and it is such a beautiful film with terrific performance from Edward Norton along with fine supporting performances from Brian Cox, Barry Pepper, Rosario Dawson and Phillip Seymour Hoffman. The 'Fuck you' scene is one of the best scenes I have ever seen. The cinematography is so terrific and full of bright coloured shots that it's a joy to watch each scene. The film tackles a difficult premise with intelligence and realistic sense without making it feel excessive. I loved the ending as well.
